AgileBits 1Password was originally designed for Mac in 2006. But now, it also offers applications for Windows, Android and iOS, plus extensions for all major browsers. As one of the most important names in the password management business, 1Password is liable to attract loads of new customers. Today, not even a soul wants a password manager that is limited to Windows, right? It's important to have access to passwords on all your devices. AgileBits 1Password 6 covered applications for Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS, as well as browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
1Password has a unique configuration process. Once you enter your name, 1Password generates a "secret key" of 34 characters. Then create the main password. Together, these two pieces generate a complete encryption key used to encrypt passwords and other data, and you must enter them each time you add a new device or browser extension. Due to its importance, 1Password then provides emergency kit with your secret key and password-mastering space. It saves it in PDF format and it is recommended to store it on a USB key or on a safe deposit box.
There are two ways to get 1Password. The simplest way is to sign up for a 1Password online subscription, which is $36 a year for one person or $60 a year for a five-member families plan. The hardest is downloading the platform-by-platform software; each time, you pay a separate software license and you must send an email to 1Password so that it can do so, since the company is "de-emphasizing" this option. The standalone licenses for Mac and Windows used to be $50 respectively, but are now combined in a suite of $65. The license is valid forever, but as with Microsoft Windows, you will have to pay for upgrade to the next version, a significantly newer version of the software.
Basic mobile apps for iOS and Android are free but very different. The $10 purchase in the app offers a Pro update for each platform, which includes Apple's support for iOS, but even a free version of iOS makes more than a paid Android one.

With end-to-end encryption prepared, the selected master password will be exceedingly secure, but of course, you will not have the ability to recover the master password.
